Temo Pese has been making industrial scales in Calto (RO) Italy since 1892 and has continued to grow over the years thanks to the company’s passion for its work, which has let it reach and maintain a position of leadership on the mechanical scale market; a position the company consolidated with its electronic weighbridges and other electronic weighing systems. The company’s scales are mainly made of steel or concrete, and it also installs prefabricated weighing platforms in pits.
"One concrete example of such synergy is the highly evolved provisioning service provided by HBM, a leading German multinational in the field of measuring systems. We started working with this supplier in 2016, and have had excellent results in the production of a new line of concrete truck scales, which are not very common in Italy but in full expansion in the foreign market."
"We've successfully used the C16 cells in other types of scales, such as modular metal truck scale with three 6x3 m modules, assembled in a framework of eight IPE beams with a longitudinal section of 270 mm. The truck scale framework is covered with 1 cm-thick chequered steel plate. The weight of the modules is supported by brackets welded to the base of each module rather than the two coupling bolts, for greater structural strength. There is a trap door above each load cell for servicing and cleaning. The cables run through fairleads in each module to the junction box. The junction box is mounted on a central module bracket to keep it as dry as possible,"explains Bimbatti. Prefabricated reinforced concrete flush pit-mounted weighbridges are some of Temo Pese’s top products, and the company from Veneto is the only manufacturer of this type in Italy. These weighbridges can be quickly installed with significant savings in terms of building work costs (the pit can be installed in one day and the truck scale installation takes another day) for a safe and efficient weighing system of highest quality. These prefabricated modules are made of three types of vibrated concrete, which can be combined in a pit wide enough for a 3 m-wide weighbridge of any length:
